Orange You Glad You Stopped By…

In RL I don’t think I own a stitch of orange clothing and to be honest, I don’t own much of it in SL but when I saw these adorable and cheap skirts and tops from  *CoKo* at the Okinawa Summer Festival, I just couldn’t pass it up. Don’t let the vendor fool you, they are actually textured really nice.

A Day At The Beach

I’m fortunate enough to live about 20 mins away from the beach. I don’t visit it as much as I would like to, and I have no excuses really, but every time I go I just feel at home. You could put me in a shack and as long as I could see the ocean from it, I would be happy.  Unfortunately even shacks on the beach are out of my price range but luckily in SL for just pennies a day I can get a great view of the ocean from my very own trailer park.

Zaara Is Always Beautiful

140722_004

I dropped by Zaara to pick up some shoes she had out for the 21 Shoe event on the 21st and, of course, ended up buying so much more. That’s how these events are supposed to work, so I can’t complain.  The highlight for me was this Runa knotted dress. I wore while DJ’ing on Monday night and folks actually teleported to Zaara picked up the dress and came back to the club wearing it.  That’s how gorgeous it is.

Hair Fair Long Hair Part One

A few days ago there was a discussion of whether all the iterations of long hair have already been made. In other words, the “there is nothing new under the sun” argument that has been around for millennia. Well, take a look, and see if you think they are all the same.

You know, they say there are only 7 plots – but there are millions of stories.

The Real Reason for Braided Hair

0718_002

My sisters and I know the real reason for braided hair. It’s not to look pretty. It’s to keep your hair neat and untangled. My hair would snarl if you looked at it wrong, so Mom would French braid it. I remember when my parents sent me to spend a week with their friends in Sioux City who were as close to grandparents as I had. When Mom was done braiding it, my skin was stretched taut and I am sure I had a mini-facelift. Under strict orders, I left the braids in while bathing and showering, washing them without unbraiding them – and sure enough, they stayed in place for the entire week. She had no time for loose, casual braids like this lovely one from Anya Ohmai for Hair Fair. A braid that did not ache for a few hours was unworthy of the name.

Safari Style

0713_004

This month’s theme for Collabor88 is Safari and Baiastice’s offerings are stylishly on point – taking inspiration from African fabrics and textures and colors but making something new  with it. Her skirts and tops are irresistible and should be kept as great mix and match pieces.  The top in particular will be a great one for layering as it skims close to the body.

What City People Think Country Folk Wear

jul08_002

The Real Housewives of New York traveled to Missoula, Montana, because nothing pumps up the drama like making a bunch of women who can barely tolerate each other travel together and be in each other’s company for days on end. Normally the women of New York are impeccably dressed for wherever they go, but with a few exceptions, the RHONY crew did not pack well for Montana. They were more Ralph Lauren New West than the real West. When they went to the rodeo, more than one wore a white prairie skirt. Rodeos are dusty and dirty events — and let’s not forget port-a-potties — where white skirts are downright silly. Watching, I realized I was seeing what city people think country folk wear. Either that or they all wanted to be Laura Ingalls once upon a time.

Things Go Awry

0706_003

 

Lately I have been having more trouble shooting on location than usual, but I really wanted to get off my platform, so I hopped over to Sky Neist Point and found this little beach and took a few snaps. I was dressed for wandering with this lovely linen dress with embroidery from Gizza. The jacket is attached to the dress and has a HUD giving three color options for the jacket. The dress comes in six options, this Boho style in pink, blue or creme,  gingham and a floral print. Continue reading
